Harmless, likable and lightweight musical based on a Broadway play, this was the first major movie role for singer Frank Sinatra. Some nice songs include "A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening," "Come Out Wherever You Are," "I Saw You First," "I Couldn't Sleep a Wink Last Night" (an Oscar nominee) and "The Music Stopped." Received an Oscar nomination for Best Scoring of a Musical (C. Bakeleinikoff). The kick is seeing up-and-comer Mel Torme in a rare early film role, alongside Sinatra and Dooley Wilson (of "Casablanca" fame). Tin Man Jack Haley gets the star billing, though.
This is a hilarious movie, even if, at times, it is slightly confusing. A very good picture of a love quadrangle, if such an item happens to exist. It's got humor, it's got love, and it's got Sinatra singing as only Sinatra can.
